At long last, it was finally my hump night at work. Just a few more shifts and then I’m on PTO again!

While I was dealing drugs at the hospital, I ate a packet of spicy Grass Fed Jerky Chews, an ounce of dark chocolate, and a some leftover stir-fried kelp noodles.

When I got home, Fitbomb roasted a bunch of chestnuts on our his outdoor gas grill. Throwing them directly on the hot grates is the best way to cook chestnuts – it’s quick and they’re so easy to peel.

After I stuffed my craw with toasted noggin-shaped nuggets, I went to bed.

While I was sleeping, Fitbomb was super productive in the kitchen. He made an heirloom carrot salad with citrus vinaigrette, Italian parsley, and crushed macadamia nuts…

…pan-roasted Chinese Five-Spice cashews in ghee…

…concocted a simple skillet-fried flatbread (made of eggs, almond flour, salt)…

…and used it as the “bread” for a ham sandwich.

Did I mention that he made all this yummy nosh in a 2-hour time-frame WHILE watching the kids? Dude. He makes me look like a lazy son of a gun.

When I woke up in the evening, I sampled all of his culinary creations while I prepared dinner. What did I make? I stir-fried a simplified version of Asian cauliflower fried rice with ‘shrooms and eggs…

…and topped it with leftover cheater Thai yellow curry chicken.

After dinner, I braised a head of cabbage in the oven and tossed a pork butt in the slow cooker to make Kalua pig. Since tomorrow night’s dinner is in the bag, maybe that means I can sleep in tomorrow evening. Oh, to dream the impossible dream…
